Seen this link on Google adverts recently?
If you click the link, go into the ‘Ad Preference Manager’ and delve further you can find a host of information about Google’s adverts and how they relate to you. Also, you can see what settings are there and what control you have. Some of these settings relate directly to you when you are logged in and some have an association with the browser you are using and its web history that is cookie tracked.
So who does Google think you are? Well, here is me in Google’s eyes based upon my browsing habits.
So, there you go. Google knows more about me than I thought. Not surprising really as I spend a lot of my time with him/her (question: is Google a she or a he in your eyes?). This information can get a bit skewed when you work for different clients (I don’t personally spend a lot of time on cooking sites…).
What’s your Google profile? What does Google think about you and who you are?
